Almansa DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

Almansa's 7,200 hectares of vineyards are watched over by the town's splendid castle, which looks out over south-eastern Albacete province.

The Monastrell grape is just beginning to show its tremendous potential here, as elsewhere in Valencia, and wine-making styles are beginning to develop slowly along similar lines. As in other neighbouring denominations, the pioneering bodegas' new red wines, blending Monastrell with Tempranilo, are finding a place in export markets.
